In this emotional talk, held in Denver, Colorado, in September 2014, education leader Heidi Heissenbuttel raises the question whether changing how we address differences in the classroom can raise the bar for every student while creating a more compassionate and inclusive culture better suited to complex problems solving in the world. In her talk, she reflects on the present situation of the schools, the students, as well as the educators and on the history of the school system. She further explores the how and why of a new inclusive school model based on three principles: culture, curriculum and collaboration. Moreover, she talks about the school-to-prison-pipeline, explains what the movement neurodiversity is, refers to the project Eye-to-Eye and emphasises the fact that we learn and benefit from diversity.
